There are a number of different ways to access Frog, our VLE for homework and student data

  • On a tablet – There is a dedicated app for tablets called FrogLearn which allows you to view the VLE. You can browse the whole platform just as you would on a computer
  • On a mobile phone/tablet – The new MyFrog app allows a user to see all of the homework which has been set as a parent or student. When prompted enter the URL and then enter your log in details. A short video about the new app can be found here
